Assault and other violent crimes like battery and assault with a deadly weapon are serious offenses, which may result in felony charges. The more severe the offense, the more severe the penalties upon conviction – including heavy fines and imprisonment. When facing assault or other violent crime charges, you need to hire an experienced lawyer as soon as you are able. Time is of the essence when building a defense. The better the defense, the better your chances of saving yourself from the worst that the court will throw at you.
Assault charges are often founded on eyewitness testimony, which can be extremely unreliable. You may know that you were just defending yourself, but if the eyewitness fails to see what happened as self-defense, you are in a very difficult position. Fortunately, it may be possible to discredit such a witness. At least if you are working with a good lawyer.
